Why see Les Miserables?


Cameron Mackintosh's epic musical is back! Based on Victor Hugo's novel, this sweeping epic is one of the most popular musicals in history, a tale of love and revolution that draws audiences in time and time again. Its classic score, written by Herbert Kretzmer and Claude-Michel Schonberg, includes the timeless 'I Dreamed A Dream', 'One Day More' and 'Do You Hear the People Sing'.

Nominated for three Tony Awards, this latest Broadway production is a more than worthy chapter in Les Miserables' long history. It debuted at the Imperial Theatre in 2014 and ran for two years, drawing huge acclaim for its stripped down storytelling, which jettisons some of the bloat attached to previous productions, and the atmospheric video projections that lend the show a hugely cinematic backdrop.


Two years after the Revolution of 1830, France is on the brink of violence once again. Dismayed that one king has been replaced by another, a group of rebels are plotting to overthrow the monarchy and lay claim to the throne for the common people.

Against this backdrop of simmering rebellion, we follow the story of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict who manages to build a new life for himself and his adopted daughter Cosette. Yet his new found happiness cannot last for long, because the unrelenting police inspector Javert, who has been hunting Valjean for two decades, is close on his tail. As Valjean's past finally catches up with him, all of the characters are swept up in the chaos that breaks out on Paris 'streets, in an epic story of thwarted love, forgiveness and the enduring strength of the human spirit.


Les Miserables has won over 100 major awards, including Oliviers, Tonys and Grammys!

Critic's review

So go. Be transported. Get caught up in the tidal wave of emotion. Cry if you are inclined. Hum the music for days on end. And then, if you love that feeling, go again when it comes back. Which, eventually, it will.

Among the best we’ve seen

My wife and I are Les Mis nuts. We have seen the show seven times in London over the years. We were really impressed by the Vancouver version we were able to see today. The cast was fantastic. There were some interpretations we haven’t seen before but they worked well. I wasn’t convinced by Steve Czarnecki as Valjean in the opening sequence, but he grew into the role beautifully. And - this is worth noting - his rendition of Bring Him Home is easily the best we have seen, and that’s saying something as we have seen some stars. The rest of the cast were all great as well. We didn’t find any weaknesses. Some clever use of backdrop projections were innovative and worked well. Well done Queen Elizabeth and the whole production. Vancouver can be proud. ... Read more

my vanvouver les misersble experience

First of all I must say that les miserable is my favorite broadway show, having seen it 3 times now in vancouver and once in london. Overall I liked the latest showing. Both val jean and javrert performed quite well. I only have 2 critiques that took away from an overall enjoyable evening. First of all about half of the performers had their mikes hanging down on their forheads which was hard to ignore. For me sitting in row 9 seat 43 it was distacting and took away from their performance. (Not that I blame the cast for this). The second critique is hard to say. I have always believed that the best person for a job should get it. That being said, having Marius played by an asian man in an 1800s period Paris play was a bit to take in (even though he did a good job of it). I just felt like it wss a little out of place, but we live in a PC country now. Overall I did enjoy the show and had a nice evening out ... Read more
